1 Loyal to Jesus forever,
Joyfully, cheerfully sing;
Praise to our wonderful Savior,
Shepherd, Redeemer and King;
‘Tis such a wonderful story,
How to save sinners He came
Emptied Himself of His glory,
Bearing our sins and shame.

He shall reign from sea to sea and shore to shore,
Over all the world as King and Conqueror;
Of His glorious kingdom there no end shall be,
Unto Him we pledge eternal loyalty.
Loyalty, loyalty,
This our battle cry shall be;
Loyalty, loyalty,
Ever His love to tell;
Loyalty, loyalty,
Sing it over land and sea,
Loyalty, loyalty
To the King Immanuel.

2 Loyal to Jesus forever,
This is the theme of our song,
Glorious Lord and Commander,
We to His kingdom belong.
Worthy of all adoration,
Praise to His excellent name,
He who has brought us salvation,
We to the world proclaim. [Refrain]
